Will fuel stabilizer help make old gas less harmful to small engines?
The purpose of fuel stabilizer is to keep the gas from going
bad. Once it is bad then it is too late. Using old gas will just
cause it to varnish inside the combustion chamber and carburetor.
Use fresh gas. Good luck.

Is it true that big car engines waste fuel as compared to small engines what is th e significance of sfc?
Does gasoline go bad?
Yes, gasoline starts to go bad when it is about 1 month old. After 6 months you should not burn it in an engine unless you have put a fuel stabilizer in it. In that case it will be usable for about 8 months. This is also important with small gasoline engines on lawnmowers for example. Bad or old gasoline can damage a small engine very easily.
Asked in Carburetors
Why do you use the carburetors?
Carburetors are used on engines not equipped with fuel injection. Almost all small engines, such as lawnmowers, generators, and other small engine applications use carburetors. Carburetors are used to mix fuel and air in the proper ratio and channel it to the intake manifold of the engine. It is then sucked into each cylinder where the fuel air mixture is burned.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1984 Lincoln Town Car located?
Most small V8 engines in FORD products have fuel pumps located on the left ( drivers) side toward the front. Follow the fuel line down to it from the carburetor. I hope this helps you. Mark *While the above information may be true for most small-block Ford engines, in a Lincoln Town Car, the electric-fuel-pump is located inside the rear gas-tank.
Asked in Vegetable Oils
Can corn oil be used for diesel fuel?
Straight corn oil cannot be used directly as a fuel in any engines. It must first be refined in a similar way to the crude oil which comes from underground oil wells. One way is to use the corn oil as the raw material for the production of a fuel suitable for internal combustion engines: first ferment the corn oil and then distil the resulting "brew" to make ethanol. Ethanol is an alcohol that can be used directly as a fuel for gasoline engines and it can also be used as a good "fuel supplement" when mixed - in small amounts - with the normal diesel fuel that is used for diesel engines.

Asked in Fuel and Engines
Is diesel fuel the same as distillate?
No, 'distillate' is not the same as diesel fuel. It is more like kerosene and is used in engines that have spark plugs for ignition rather than high compression to ignite the (injected) fuel. Distillate engines often have a small gasoline tank so they will start col on gasoline and you switch it to distillate after it warms up.
